Dominican Republic

Juan Dolio, Dominican Republic.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Juan Dolio and its neighboring beach town of Guayacanes are ideal destinations for those gay and lesbian travelers seeking a quiet, restful vacation but with the option of making excursions into the surrounding countryside. Juan Dolio is perfectly located midway between the culture, shopping, dining and nightlife of Santo Domingo and the great beaches, scuba diving and other attractions in La Romana.

The small towns of Guayacanes and Juan Dolio are set up along four interrupted stretches of road, following the shoreline. Juan Dolio has a boulevard and a main street where most of the gay friendly hotels, inns, guesthouses and restaurants are located. Scattered among the larger resort hotels are numerous smaller gay friendly inns and guesthouses. Regardless of your budget or taste in accommodation, gay and lesbian travelers will find something to suit individual budgets and tastes.

Most travelers to the Juan Dolio area arrive at the Las Americas International Airport, a 30 minute drive. However, some flights are now starting to arrive at the new La Romana airport. This airport is just over an hour’s drive from Juan Dolio.

Everybody walks in Juan Dolio. You can walk, jog or cycle in safety here. The beach road is quiet and has very little traffic. If you decide to cycle, watch out the speed bumps. Most hotels here have bicycles on loan to guests. If you’re on a budget, the public buses or guaguas travel east and west on the highway, passing every few minutes. Just stand anywhere by the side of the road and they’ll stop for you.

Attractions worth visiting include the Cueva de las Maravillas, a cave complex where you can browse a collection of pre-Columbian art amidst spectacular stenography created with lighting against stalagmites and stalactites. Another attraction is the Tropical Plantation on the Hato Mayor-Sabana de la Mar road due north of Juan Dolio. This working flower farm has a stunning botanical garden and a natural green jungle with a labyrinth of paths.

Juan Dolio and Guayacanes are fast gaining a reputation for excellent cuisine. Discerning gay and lesbian travelers can choose from a variety of fine restaurants ranging from informal to casually elegant, some with noteworthy wine cellars. Italian cuisine, steak and seafood abound here. Since most restaurants cater to domestic vacationers coming in from Santo Domingo, prices in Juan Dolio are attractive all year round.

For the energetic traveler, there is plenty to do. The best golf in the Boca Chica-Juan Dolio area is Los Marlins Golf and Country Club, on the coastal highway not far from the Costa Caribe Resort. Nearly every large hotel here has a dive shop that offers PADI certification courses and open water dives. Juan Dolio is about an hour away from some of the country's best diving off Catalina Island. If you enjoy snorkeling, the long reef just off shore is home to a colorful variety of fish. Alternatively, go fishing for marlin, dorado and barracuda.

So, whether you are looking for peace and quiet, excitement, fun, recreation, culture or great dining, Juan Dolio, Dominican Republic has it all for the gay and lesbian traveler.
